WICHITA, Kan. - Two people escaped with only minor injuries as their house went up in flames early Monday morning.

Firefighters were called to a home in the 14-hundred block of South Main, near Harry, around 5 AM. The first crews on-the-scene say the fire was found mostly in the front of the structure. 

Battalion Chief John Turner says that the male occupant of the home woke up early and smelled smoke. Both people that escaped the fire received minor cuts from jumping through a window.

Fire crews went back to the home Monday afternoon to make sure the fire didn't re-spark. Investigators are still trying to determine how the fire started.
